Virtual Newborn Sessions: capture once in a lifetime images of your baby born during lock-down

"They are absolutely beautiful! I cannot thank you enough for your support in enabling us to capture such a precious moment in these circumstances."



A once in a lifetime opportunity


For the time being we are all living in a new socially distanced, but digitally connected world. Life must go on and babies are born, and I firmly believe that parents shouldn't miss out on precious images of their newborn. Since March 2020, I have offered 'virtual' newborn photography sessions to clients who are missing their booked studio newborn session with me due to self-isolation and Corvid-19 restrictions. These sessions have been hugely successful and I am now delighted to offer a limited number of sessions to new clients.


'I’d recommend Rachel in a heartbeat. At a time where we wouldn’t have thought possible to capture some precious moments of our newborn son, Rachel was able to support us in achieving this. She is clearly passionate and a joy to work with, she went the extra mile to deliver a truly spectacular personalised service!!'


Now that we are once again in lockdown here in the UK, new parents are missing out on so much - introducing their baby to family and friends, baby classes, new parent meet ups, shopping for baby clothes - sadly the list goes on.


There is one thing that you need not miss out on - beautiful photographs of your newborn baby! I am delighted to be able to work with you to create stunning fine art style photography of your newborn baby in the safety of your own home. These beautiful photographs are created using advanced compositing and editing techniques to create studio style images for you to treasure.


So much more than an editing service...


Our Virtual Newborn Mini Session package enables me to work with you on a 1:1 basis via video call, to create twosome of my favourite fine art style images of your newborn baby. These images, usually only achievable through a studio newborn session, are perfect for capturing your newborn in the first few weeks of life.


''I can not recommend doing this enough you will not be disappointed. Lockdown babies are missing out on so much it's so amazing that you can still enjoy a newborn photo session and receive such gorgeous images thanks to Rachel.''


In addition to the hands image shown above, you will be able to choose your 2 favourite digital backdrops from a wide selection. Most of these backdrops are also available in additional colourways. Bespoke digital backdrops available om request and at additional cost.



Your Virtual Newborn Session fee is just £99 and includes:


  • A pre-session consultation by email or phone

  • Downloadable PDF virtual session prep guide

  • Access to an exclusive online video posing guide

  • 30 minute 1:1 guided posing session with me via video call, during which I will guide you to pose you baby and to take your photographs using whichever camera or phone you have available.*

  • Editing of 3 images - one hands image and 2 fine art composites which are then available as high resolution digital downloads

  • If baby is settled and sleeping you will also be able to capture detail shots including toes.

  • All unedited images taken during your session will be yours to keep

  • Additional images can be edited at additional cost

* Your session fee includes one re-schedule of your video session should baby be awake or unsettled. If you are still unable to capture your images, you will be able to use the posing materials to capture them in your own time and send them to me to be edited as usual.



If your baby has older siblings, there is also an option to upgrade your session to capture that precious sibling image, using my go to, very safe, studio pose. Once you have captured your photo I will professionally edit it for you to produce a studio style image. Sibling upgrade costs £35.
